Religion briefs: Carson City’s First Baptist sets Good Friday, Easter services

First Baptist sets Good Friday, Easter services

First Baptist Church, 1750 Mountain St. Carson City has scheduled special Good Friday and Easter services.

First Baptist will hold a Good Friday Candlelight and Communion Service at 6 p.m. Friday, March 25. The service will feature a mini-drama, “The Suffering God” by Caroline Fletcher. The drama is a portrayal of the crucifixion, but also looks at the question of suffering and demonstrates though terrible things happen in this world, this doesn’t mean we have an uncaring God who can’t sympathize with our suffering: Jesus lived among us and shared our pain.

First Baptist will hold its Easter Sunday Service at 10:45 a.m. Sunday, March 27. The service will feature the mini-drama “Nailing Hope Against the Wall” by Michelle Pitman. In the drama, a woman hangs a painting of the crucified Jesus on her living room wall to the ridicule of her husband, but many years later he comes to appreciate its value.

The services are free and open to the public.
